2021 Fantasy Outlook
Barrera signed with the Athletics in 2012 as an international free agent. Since, he's taken an indirect path to his potential major-league debut in 2021. Now 25 years old, Barrera has managed only 384 plate appearances above High-A. Even so, he put together a fairly impressive performance during last season's original spring training, racking up eight hits in 28 at-bats while striking out at just over a 20% clip. Those marks fell largely within expectations based on his minor-league profile, which reflects a strong ability to make contact paired with limited power. Barrera logged 22 steals in 90 games at Double-A Midland across the 2018 and 2019 seasons, offering some optimism that he'll be able to chip in some stolen bases. Looking ahead to the 2021 campaign, Barrera should have the chance to compete for the left field job due to the departure of Robbie Grossman during the offseason.
